In this paper, the authors introduce a framework and a methodology to manage a SaaS application on top of a PaaS infrastructure. This framework utilizes PaaS policy sets to implement the SaaS provider's elasticity policy for its application server tier. Adaptation is based on strategy-trees, which allow for systematic capture, representation and reasoning about adaptation variability, based on hierarchically organizing different levels of temporal granularity. Thus, a strategy-tree is utilized at the SaaS layer to actively guide policy set selection at runtime in order to maintain alignment with the SaaS provider's business objectives.
